11 The book of Proverbs, for example, lays out a wealth of distinctions that are, in many instances, polar in character—wise and foolish, rich and poor, diligent and slothful, virtuous woman and loose woman. 12 While it is commonly recognized that the Adam and Eve story overlaps in a general way with the concerns of the Wisdom tradition, 13 a closer look is called for. The association of the woman with the knowledge of good and evil is a useful starting point. In the book of Proverbs, the frequent interplay between the admonitions to acquire wisdom and the warnings about the attractions of loose women (or, less often, advice about faithfulness to one woman) suggests that the sages work with the assumption that there is no separating a man's desire for knowledge from his desire for a woman.
